Madonna House Volunteers Needed

Volunteer Needs
Madonna House is in need of volunteer leaders and participants for the Talking is Teaching initiative.

We are looking for dynamic volunteers who love to read to little ones and desire to share that passion with our Madonna House moms!  Talking is Teaching will take place on the fourth Thursday of each month at 6pm.  Some minor preparation will be necessary, but the free books, curriculum, and all materials are supplied; check out the program at www.cbostalkingisteaching.com.  We would also like to get a daytime group going, open to parents in the diocese. We will need volunteer leaders, as well as participants for the daytime group.  Please contact Sharisa McDaniel at smcdaniel@cctulsa.org to get started with this fun initiative!
